According to an XDA thread that has over 400 replies, the ASUS Transformer Prime‘s recent Android 4.0 update has left many users experiencing random lock-ups. Fortunately I personally haven’t had any issues with my Prime freezing up, but the widespread forum complaints have definitely gotten ASUS’ attention. ASUS technical manager Gary Key has confirmed company plans to hopefully “have a fix available in early February.” So if you are one of the folks having problems, help is reportedly on the way.
Along with the lock-up acknowledgment, ASUS is also aware of an issue with Wi-Fi degradation when streaming media to a connected Bluetooth device. It seems that when both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios are working simultaneously, they don’t play well with the others presence. And just like the lock-up issue, a fix is in the works and is also due out early next month.
It looks like February will be a big month for the Transformer Prime because if you will remember a bootloader unlock tool should be released as well. We will keep you posted as soon as we hear more, but in the meantime if you are having any issues with your Transformer Prime, why don’t you sound off in the comments below.
